Thank you all for a wonderful first nine weeks of school!
Our students sure have been busy, even outside of the classroom this fall engaging in fall athletics, extra curricular groups, special events and so much more. Our LMS Student Council has been especially busy lately by hosting the Halloween Dance, which over three hundred of our students enjoyed, and planning and implementing Red Ribbon Week activities for the entire student body. Our National Junior Honor Society students planned a food drive and are working on planning the Holiday Dance which will take place in December. Coming up, LMS will host the annual Veterans Day Recognition Ceremony, which is a student-led event honoring all veterans. Please plan to join us November 9, 2018 at 9:00am in the LMS gym to honor America's heroes.
In the classroom, LMS continues to focus on writing to learn strategies through the use of Collins Writing across content areas. We know that writing is an essential skill, and are committed to building those skills with our students.
“Writing is not simply a way for students to demonstrate what they know. It is a way to help them understand what they know. At its best, writing is learning.” –The National Commission on Writing
If you are interested in helping your student grow their writing skills at home, please feel free to explore the Collins website: http://collinsed.com/free-resources/
LMS will implement LMS Club Days starting next week! This is a student recommended, teacher planned system that will allow students to explore interests, make new friends, learn real world skills and relieve some stress. We are excited to provide this opportunity to our students!
Thank you again for a great start to the year!
